Thanks for your interest in volunteering with the Adaptive Sports Center!

The Adaptive Sports Center is always in need of reliable volunteers to assist either in the field or office. Considered an essential part of the Adaptive Sports Center team, we utilize volunteers year-round based on their availability and skill level.  We are accepting winter Pass Volunteer applications through October 1st and Non-Pass Volunteer applications on a rolling basis throughout the season. Pass Volunteers will be notified of acceptance by October 15.

Interested in volunteering at our events or with our Development Department? Please contact Jessica Lapham, Development Coordinator, jessica@adaptivesports.org.

Winter Volunteer Opportunities

Pass Volunteer

As a Winter Pass Volunteer you will team up with our instructors on the hill one day a week (+5 extra days during busy times) in exchange for a CBMR ski pass. You will demo ski drills, lift and load sit skis or act as a as a “ski buddy” for a family member or friend of a participant with a disability. Some participants travel from across the country to visit us, while others are full time local residents. Volunteers with a passion for the outdoors will assist people with disabilities and contribute to their amazing experience with the ASC.

  • A typical volunteer day runs 9 a.m.- 4 p.m.
  • Volunteers receive an hour lunch break from 12-1 p.m.
  • Volunteers must be intermediate or advanced skiers or snowboarders.
  • All volunteers must agree to a federal background check (every two years).
  • Volunteers are required to attend trainings in November/December.
  • The minimum age to volunteer with the ASC is 16.

Non Pass Volunteer

A non-pass volunteer will have the same responsibilities and experiences as a pass volunteer, but you can make your own schedule. Want to volunteer once a week? Great! Once a month? Perfect! Once a season? We can make it work.
